SOME EXCELLENT SUGGESTIONS"
REGARDING BREEDING OF HOGS
Rouzbase la Ono of Most Important Factors In Wintering

(Dy n. n. laiia.)
The farmers of Dcnmnrk securo the.
best prices for their fancy bacon for
the reason that they hae established
small packing establishments where
they can haul their hogs and get their
pay for the hogs according to their
actual worth. How different from tho
system, or lack of system, In this
country, where wo arc compelled to
tako Just what the packing houso oper
ators ore a mind to pay us for our
hogs. Will tho tlmo ever come when
our farmers con see tho great benefits
to be derived from co-operation?
Roughage Is ono of the most Impor
tant factors In wintering thp brood
sows, and If they do not get enough
coarse food they will not do well. Corn
and milk aro well balanced as a diet,
but there should be something added
to distend tho organs or digestion.
Then again, brood sows will keep
more quiet and contented If they are
given alfalfa, clover or some kind of
roughage to work over during the day.
Good 'corn stover Is better ttaa noth
ing and tho sows will work It over and
cat large quantities of It every day.

There Is no standard of excellence
for the scrub hog since he may pos

ful one; he may be of any color.
He has tho reputation of being able
to stand all kinds of rough treatment
and still survive.
He Is regarded ao being able to re
sist disease better than tho Improved
breeds of hogs. Wo very much
doubt whether this quality attributed
to the scrub hog Is true since we havo
noticed that hug cholera takes tho
ecrubs as well as tho well-bred hog.
Ono thing Is sure, that the scrub hog
can consume more valuable feed and
glvo less In return than any other
animal that wo know of.
A farmer who owns a herd of scrub
hogs seldom needs any other corn crib
than his bogs.
He never gets rich selling pork, and

to mako him money to buy better bred
hogs he would never own better ones.
Tho scrub hog usually keeps his
owner so poor that bo is not able to
buy any better stock. In fact,, this is
tho excuse usually given for hlB exist
ence. Poor farming and scrub hogs
ore usually found associated together.

Too much stress cannot bo laid on
selecting breeding Bwlne from sound,
healthy parents. Animals that ore not

are strong In that respect. In caso

very helpful. About all wc can do Is
to feed a ration that can bo easiljr di

let tho dlscaso run its course.
Wholo milk Is ono of the best feeds
for hogs that aro suffering with dis
ease of any kind. It la on excellent
feed and has often been of great as
sistance In bringing hogs through
spells of sickness.
Thero Is no disputing the fact that
corn Is an Ideal hog feed, but every
practical feeder admits that better re
sults can be brought about by feeding
a ration that Is composed of less than
two-thirds corn. It is a mlstako to
think wo cannot afford to buy other
feeds to mix with the corn.
